From Compute! magazine, March 1985: Run For The Money promises to be "a fast-paced arcade game to challenge strategy and business skills." This promise is largely kept. In addition to being an entertaining game, it is also educational.     The element that sets Run For The Money apart from other arcade-style games is the challenge to make meaningful decisions when faced with sometimes bewildering information. Players are forced to make choices they will either gain by or suffer for....

From game author Randy Carr's website (http://www.fatlion.com/nettrek/): NetTrek - Where'd it come from and where'd it go? Way back in 1982, before Warp-Drive, there was this secret new computer being developed at Apple Computer known as the ' Lisa '. The Lisa computer had a real bitmapped screen that was fairly large (i.e. lots of pixels!) and a real pointing device that resembled what Xerox had done in the late '70's, known as the 'mouse'. I was working at Apple Computer in those days, so I...

It is a mouse-controlled ball game where two players compete on hoverboards in a parabolic arena with two "goals" on the sides. The object is to score points by getting the ball into the other player's goal. Players tossed out of the arena will simply respawn after a few seconds, but fouls are issued for letting the ball go out of bounds. There are multiple game...

In addition to the standard game, Shanghai II also features Dragon's Eye, a 2-player Shanghai varriant.

Amazingly, it still works in Mac OS X — it is truly a testament to the backwards compatibility of the Mac. It is also the most configurable of the Glypha family.
